Exhibition featuring Artist Shaleen Garba

June 9-July 23

About the Artist: Shaleen Garba is a contemporary artist based in Atlanta, GA, who communicates her art through the language of color, organic shapes, and expressive mark-making.  In addition to traditional brushes, she uses pallet knives, spray bottles, or fingers to help scratch the painted surface.  She continues to explore her relationship with paint and the various tools she uses. It's a never-ending journey of humility, confidence, and gladness. 

Garba wanted to be an artist from a young age, as evident in her third-grade autobiography homework back in 1994.  She attended the Academy of Art University, concentrating in fine arts. And through much trial, error, and perseverance, her style emerged as colorful and joyous, intuitively playing with shapes that renders a smile. Influenced by Pablo Picasso's Rose period, Garba uses cheerful orange and pink hues to show play and lightheartedness. For Garba, making art is an essential, emotional declaration when words won't do.

Her work has been displayed at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, New York City's Times Square billboards, the Yonkers Arts Weekend, and many juried exhibitions. Garba's pieces can be found in private collections nationally and internationally. For more information visit Shaleen Garba's Website Here
